    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 62208:2011 applies to empty enclosures, prior to the incorporation of switchgear and controlgear components by the user, as supplied by the enclosure manufacturer. This standard specifies general definitions, classifications, characteristics and test requirements of enclosures to be used as part of switchgear and controlgear assemblies (e.g. in accordance with the IEC 61439 series), the rated voltage of which does not exceed 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c., and suitable for general use for either indoor or outdoor applications. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. This edition constitutes a technical revision and includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the last edition:
    - consideration of the restructured series of standards IEC 61439;
    - alignment of test procedures with the newest relevant standards.
